Most of those were really sucky films. I think you would need to take a look at the box office for some good films to come to any conclusions about the genre as a whole. Certainly, GotG and Star Wars both pull in over a Billion per movie and there are probably examples of other Sci Fi films that have done well. I jus think what you are saying is that it was a really weak year for Sci Fi overall.
